How to Enjoy Cleaner Air In Your Home
Thursday, August 11, 2016
Woman enjoying clean indoor air

There are many ways the air in a home can become overrun with pollutants. Pet dander, dust, mold, cleaning chemicals, and toxins in the external environment all contribute to unhealthy air in the home. These 3 easy tips for clean air in your home will make you breathe easier.

Get a HEPA Filter

A stand alone, genuine HEPA (high efficiency particulate air) filter will filter mold spores and even bacteria and viruses. It will also filter about 99.97% of particles at .03 microns, which means really small particles. There are also single HEPA filters that can be used in an air conditioning unit. Make sure to change those filters often; doing so will also help keep the home air clean.

Choose Cleaning Products that are Low VOC

Cleaning products can contain harmful chemicals that contribute to unhealthy indoor air. Consider cleaning with natural products like vinegar, or seek out products that are labeled "low VOC" (volatile organic compound).

Control Pet Dander

It's nice to have your dog or cat curled up with you, but keeping some areas pet free helps keep pet dander to a minimum. Consider creating a pet free zone in the bedroom and kitchen, so at least the air in those rooms will be pet dander free.To find out more or to get a free quote and second opinions on major repairs contact Charlotte N.C.'s most respected heating and cooling company, All City Heat and Air.

Needed an estimate on a new heat pump for an older home. I loved this company! They were completely professional and gave a very competitive estimate. They didn't offer the brand name I was looking for so I elected to go with another company for the work, but I would highly recommend these guys. They were happy to educate me about the questions I should be asking service providers, and even when I told them I would be going with another company, they still gave me a list of questions to ask the vendor. If I didn't demand Trane, I would have happily let this company perform the work. Just a great company.
